Silver fish

Silver fish
Alkmaar found in the sink in bathroom, North Holland, Netherlands, Europe County
November 29, 2017
Size: small
quite a large specimen of very small animals all around in the house

Moved from Arthropods.

If this specimen had been found in the U.S. ...
...I'd say it resembled Ctenolepisma lineata:

I have no idea what species occur in Europe, though.

Because the photo was taken outside of BugGuide's coverage area, it will eventually land in "Frass." With luck, someone will be able to provide you with a solid ID before then.
